Neural Engineering: Designing Bionic Limbs Controlled by the Brain

From Steve Austin in The Six Million Dollar Man to Luke Skywalker in Star Wars, we have seen countless examples of robotic prostheses that rival or exceed our own biological limbs; but, how close are we to making these devices a reality?

Join Eric Earley, Ph.D. candidate and graduate student researcher in the Center for Bionic Medicine at the Shirley Ryan AbilityLab, as he shares his lab's research on advanced prosthetic limbs.
